Ducati appears to be doing every thing it will probably to elbow its means into the electrical bicycle market, now unveiling three new designs for folding electrical bicycles.
Ducati unveils new folding electrical bikes
The most recent electrical automobiles to affix the Ducati household come within the type of a trio of folding e-bikes, every with their very own distinctive designs.
The transfer comes only one week after Ducati made headlines by unveiling a new urban-oriented electric trekking bicycle.
The Ducati Scrambler city trekking bike was designed to sort out each city driving and light-weight path obligation, and the identical may seemingly be stated for a few of Ducati’s new designs.
The three new fashions additionally cowl a variety of driving potentialities from city commuting to off-road shenanigans.
The Ducati SCR-E folding e-bike
First up, Ducati launched a brand new folding fat-tire bike that leverages the corporate’s Scrambler model.
It encompasses a suspension fork and enormous 20″x4″ fats tires, providing the power to hit trails and sand, along with plain previous city driving.
It additionally has built-in LED lighting (with the tail gentle built-in into the seat submit, good!).
The SCR-E additionally seems to have an choice for a rear rack.
Regardless of the fats tires, the folding function of the bike hints at its utility and transport-optimized design, permitting the Ducati SCR-E to be folded to slot in a trunk of a automobile.
The bike’s 375 Wh battery is hidden within the aluminum body, and Ducati claims that it’s ample for 70 km (43 miles) of vary, although we don’t know what the highest pace of the bike might be. We additionally don’t have pricing information but, however we don’t count on it to be low cost.
Ducati SCR-E Sport full-suspension folding e-bike
For these seeking to get a bit extra intense with their driving, the Ducati SCR-E Sport provides rear suspension to the entrance suspension of the Ducati SCR-E.
It additionally swaps on road-oriented tires and replaces the spoked wheels with casted models.
The bigger 470 Wh battery is outwardly ample for 80 km (50 miles) of vary.

That purple bump apparently helps home a part of the 375 Wh battery hidden within the body tube (although seemingly giant sufficient that it will probably’t be utterly hid).
All three bikes look to sport commuter-ready parts together with multi-speed transmissions, hydraulic disc brakes, and built-in mudguards.
Hopefully, Ducati decides to grace us with extra tech specs and pricing information quickly. In that case, we’ll be again to replace. Although I’d commerce that for the electric motorcycle that Ducati promised us and has yet to deliver.
Till then, let’s admire the large push Ducati has made into the e-bike area, releasing over half a dozen e-bikes in the past couple of years.
Appears like Harley-Davidson isn’t the only motorcycle manufacturer with a keen eye on the quickly ballooning electrical bicycle market.
